I think we all need something fun to do so we can forget, at least for a while this long, cold, snowy winter! The Faribault Elks will be hosting a Mardi Gras celebration this evening beginning at 5:30 pm. There will be a costume contest, parade, and you can win some Moolah! The cost is just $15 a person. Member discounts are available and guests are welcome. The Faribault Elks Mardi Gras will feature the Mark Cameron Band! Let the Good Times Roll.

You can also grab something to eat too, Jambalya, Cornbread, Muffaletta slideers, Cajun Pork Tenderloin with Creole sauce, Shrimp Po'Boys, Banana Fosters, and Hurricanes. Our good friend Sam at Faribault Interiors said if you buy one ticket for $15 he will give you one free ticket! Give Sam a call and if he doesn't answer he will call you back. Sam's cell number is 507-330-4457. The address of the Faribault Elks is 131 Lyndale Av N Faribault, Minnesota 55021.
